Implied Manifesto #1 is a music performance by Stephanie Pan which incorporates abstracted pop songs, live improvisation and inarticulateness. Made for voice, wineglasses, Suzuki Omnichord, Nebulophone and live sampler, the performance bears semblance to a personal manifesto, but has almost no comprehensible words. Rather, it relies on the visceral presence of the performer, abstract sound, and inflections to make itself understood.
This piece was created for and premiered at De Player, Rotterdam, as part of De Weekend van Avontuur (Weekend of Adventure) during Rotterdam Opera Days 2011.
